Drives like a car even though it’s a full-size truck. Has every option for a businessman or a supervisor of a construction site. Five USB ports just in the front of the cab, multiple 12-volt outlets, and an actual 110-volt AC power outlet. Backup camera comes in handy when parking and maneuvering. Nice heated and cooled seats, and heated steering wheel is a bonus on cold mornings. Cab is roomy, with enough space to comfortably seat five adults.

Dislikes

With the Crew Cab, the regular-length bed makes parking the truck difficult. Considering how loaded this truck was, I expected it to have a sunroof, but it didn’t. Lastly, the stereo/navigation system wasn’t especially user-friendly. I ended up just connecting my phone by Bluetooth to listen to music.

Verdict

The mixture of tough truck with luxury car makes for a great final result. Looking at the competition, like Ram’s top -of-the-line SLT, the price for the GMC is competitive. If you are shopping for a brand-new full-size truck, the GMC Sierra 1500 SLT is worth looking at.
